 Jody Aaron named chair of State Bar Negligence Section

Jody L. Aaron, a Detroit-based personal injury and medical malpractice attorney with Johnson Law, which also has a Grand Rapids office, has been elected chair of the Negligence Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan.

“I am quite honored to have been selected to chair this most outstanding group of top-notch civil litigators,” Aaron said. 
The Negligence Law Section promotes the interests of justice in the civil litigation context. The group is unusual in that it effectively represents the interests of both sides of the civil litigation arena – plaintiffs and defendants.

“Johnson Law and I are so proud of Jody and all she has accomplished throughout her career. Being Chairperson of the Negligence Section of our State Bar is an incredible honor and speaks to the wide range of respect and admiration lawyers throughout the state of Michigan have for Jody,” said attorney Ven Johnson.
